FA Vase Preview
After receiving byes from the Qualifying rounds, we enter the FA Vase in the 1st Round on Saturday, with a tough away game against Highworth Town. The "Worthians" have a 100% record after 13 games in the league and have only lost once this season in Cup competitions. Boatmen are in good form too, winning our last 6 games, 5 of them without conceding a goal and scoring 24 in the process. Should be a cracking game and your support is much appreciated if you make the trip up to Swindon with us. Dave Diaper said: "I went to see one of Highworth's games recently and learnt a lot. We will have to be at our best to beat them, but as you all should know by now, if your names on it..."
Post Code for Sat Navs is SN6 7SJ. This will take you to the car park south of the ground and there is a gate there to access the pitch & clubhouse. Admission prices are Adults £5, Over 60/U16 £3. In the event of a draw after extra time, the replay will be next Tuesday.
Sholing 7-0 Folland Sports
A much changed Sholing side were still too strong for the Planemakers and romped to a big win. For the second game running, Kev Brewster had a hat-trick of assists and also grabbed himself a goal from the Penalty spot. Also pleasing for the Boatmen were good first team debuts by a number of youngsters and two of them, Rory Wood (2) & Harry Butler got on the scoresheet. Remarkable that Butler & 2 other lads were playing 24 hours after their epic Youth Cup game. Byron Mason grabbed another brace and Jack Attrill got the other goal in a very one-sided Cup tie - Match Report & Video
Sholing U18's win at Aldershot in Youth Cup
The young boatmen had yet another incredible game in the FA Youth Cup to again, win on penalties. All the more impressive as they defeated Aldershot Town U18's, a club much higher in the football ladder than ourselves. Sholing twice came from behind, Connor Pearson equalised in the 2nd half to send it to extra time. In the second period of extra time, Sholing again equalised, this time through Harry Butler. As in the last round, Aaron Whitmarsh saved a couple of pens and Harvey Wright scored the winning spot kick to send the Boatmen through to the 1st Round Proper of the FA Youth Cup. Brilliant achievement, well done to all the lads, coaches & parents - Match Report, Video & Photos
Bemerton Heath 0-4 Sholing
Boatmen laid the hoodoo of recent results at Bemerton with an emphatic win, a lot of it down to the set-piece delivery of Kev Brewster. Brewy had assists on 3 of the goals, all from corners and was even involved in the other goal as well. On 32 mins, Byron Mason headed in a corner at the far post. The lead was doubled on 39 mins as TJ met Brewy's corner with a thumping 8 yard header. On 52 mins, Brewy's cross into the box was chested by Marlon into the path of Dan Mason, who smashed an 18 yard shot into the bottom corner. Brewy's hat-trick of assists came on 71 mins, as Byron Mason got a flick header from the corner to make it 5 wins in a row - Match Report & Video
Ringwood Town 0-2 Sholing
Dan Mason continued his goalscoring form with a second half brace as Sholing progressed in the League Cup. After a quiet first half, on 49 minutes a deep cross by Kev Brewster was headed back past the keeper by D-Dan. It was almost a carbon copy on 54 mins, as once again, Brewy's perfect delivery found D-Dan to knock over the line from 6 yards. Sadly, and to the confusion of everyone watching, Marv was shown a straight red after a little bit of handbags following a late tackle on Lee Wort. Sholing saw out the final 30 mins with 10 men and will be at home to Petersfield Town in the next Round - Match Report
Bournemouth 0-2 Sholing
Boatmen claimed the 3 points at what's often been a bogey ground for us, with a comfortable win. We dominated the first half and went ahead on 25 mins when Kev Brewster's freekick was expertly headed home by Dan Mason. On 40 minutes, Barry Mason teed up Byron Mason to hammer home. Second half lacked much goalmouth action, so a clean sheet for Jamie Bray making his debut in goal and a welcome return in central defence for Pete Castle - Match Report
